AirAsia X makes its case for Sydney – in the skies

AirAsia X knows a thing or two about making itself heard, especially when it comes to its bid to begin flights to Sydney. The airline has been trying to launch flights to the Australian city for a while now, but the Malaysian government has not given it rights to do so.

The carrier’s CEO, Azran Osman Rani, has said this is because Malaysia wants to protect Malaysia Airlines (which is the only airline flying between Kuala Lumpur and Sydney) – a charge that the Malaysian government denies.

Now AirAsia X has taken its message to the skies, by painting its A330 with the slogan: “Liberate Sydney – end the monopoly”.
